I have best results in my 30-06 with Federal 180 gr Barnes TSX. Great performance and better accuracy than Nosler.
No offense, but your post has pretty much no bearing on the op's question...
According to the Federal website, their one and only load for the 7mm Weatherby is indeed a 160 grain Trophy Bonded bullet. However, it's the tipped variety, not the Bear Claw. While Bear Claws are tough bullets, they aren't very aerodynamic. Trophy Bonded's new tipped bullet should still be tough and is greatly improved in the aerodynamic department. I'm not sure, but I'd bet that the new Trophy Bonded tipped bullet probably has a higher ballistic coefficient than the Partition too
It's well known that individual rifles can have individual tastes. If your rifle shoots the new load well, it should work out well for you.
